More About the Author

Anne Fine leads a double life as an author. Of her eight novels for adult readers, she describes seven as black comedies and the first, The Killjoy, as simply 'dead black'. These adult novels cause readers to squirm with mingled horror and delight as she peels away the layers in all too familiar family relationships, exposing the tangled threads and conflicts beneath. It's therefore perhaps not surprising that Anne has openly expressed astonishment at the fact that murder in the domestic setting is not more common.
A great favourite for discussions in reading groups, Anne Fine's work has been published in over forty-five languages. Despite this, she remains best known in her home country, Britain, as a writer principally for children. She has twice won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Awards, the Guardian Children's Book Prize and numerous other prizes and awards. She was the second Children's Laureate from 2001-3, is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and was awarded an OBE for services to children's literature.
Anne Fine is an entertaining and engaging speaker on the subject of books and reading, and is in demand the world over for her tireless enthusiasm, common sense approach to literacy, and for the deliciously wicked humour that permeates all her writing.

Well I annoyed my husband no end by chuckling constantly throughout reading this book. I feel like I know all of Ralph's relations personally through Anne Fines efortlessly 'very true' writing. Ralph's extended family portrait is not pretty but absolutely hilarious; with backbiting, scheming, seething resentment, exhaustion and all the general selfish, take family for granted kind of things that happen... I think I might go on holiday myself next Christmas!

As a family we first listened to this on CD on a long car journey and we laughed out loud from us 40 somethings to our children ranging from 16 to 10 at the time. My ten year old wanted it for Christmas to recapture the humour and she read it with obvious enjoyment. For anyone who has wondered about the sanity of large family get togethers at Christmas...

The audio CD with Julian Rind-Tutt has transformed long car journeys into a joy. As a mum of 3, the chapter titled 'Sorry' literally brought tears of recognition to my eyes. Our family has adopted several catchphrases from this book: "I think I've done my fair whack" being the classic.

I found that this audio CD was a great christmas present as it was a story about the horrors of christmas and it helped me hide away from the dreaded relatives at christmas time dissolved in this wonderful novel.

I enjoyed this book because it had a lot of really funny bits.
I would recommend this book for 9-14 because it would suit a lot of people.
I would definitely recommend reading any other anne fine books because they are all brilliant.
